Common Questions and Answers about Imiquimod pregnancy

aldara

Avatar n tn I have talked to several docs some use cryo but I have not found any that use laser. None even brought up imiquimod which I learned about online and feel that it might be best in my situation. It seems they prescribe whatever they are familiar with. Also a transmission question. Would my partner get the condyloma exactly where my affected skin touched theres? or could it pop up anywhere on them once they have contracted it? Also does my sperm carry the hpv virus?
Avatar f tn Hello, It is common to get pyogenic granuloma during pregnancy. Treatment consists of topical imiquimod cream and alitretinoin gel, intralesional steroid injections and surgical excision. Sclerotherapy, chemical cauterization with silver nitrate, ligation of the base and cryotherapy30 have all been reported effective. For that you have to consult a dermatologist as unfortunately no treatment which is available at home is there. I hope it helps. Take care and God bless.
Avatar n tn Hello. I am in my 39th week of pregnancy, but early in my pregnancy I was firstly diagnosed with Chlamydia. (Note, I have had a normal uncomplicated pregnancy, although I DID have Chlamydia, it was cured, and was later diagnosed with HPV)... I needed two (painful) treatments of Azthromycin before I was finally cleared. I still continued to -occasionally- have a slight green/yellow discharge that sort of resembled what it would look like if I blew my nose during a cold.
Avatar m tn If this is not possible, only in your case (and not your wife's) you could treat them yourself with either Warticon (podophyllotoxin) or Aldara (Imiquimod). However in the case of your wife, these are contraindicated during pregnancy. Genital warts may rapidly enlarge during pregnancy, probably as a result of altered immune system or increased oestrogen/progesterone, but they regress after delivery often with complete resolution without any treatment.
Avatar f tn Depending on the size and location of the wart, and other factors, a doctor will offer one of several ways to treat them. * Imiquimod (Aldara) a topical immune response cream, applied to the affected area * A 20% podophyllin anti-mitotic solution, applied to the affected area and later washed off * A 0.
Avatar n tn There is no way to predict whether they will grow or disappear. -Imiquimod (Aldara) a topical immune response cream, applied to the affected area -A 20% podophyllin anti-mitotic solution, applied to the affected area and later washed off -A 0.5% podofilox solution, applied to the affected area but not to be washed off -Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) Any of these can be applied to the affected areas.
Avatar n tn The other treatments like use of liquid nitrogen, phenol and diathermy can be painful, and are not usually done on children. It is not known whether imiquimod (aldara) is safe to use during pregnancy or on children younger than 12. Also results of treatment of molluscum contagiousum with aldara are not that satisfactory. I would suggest that you discuss with your doctor, regarding the advantages and disadvantages of using aldara. Best.
Avatar n tn However, none of that has been scientifically proven.Also more commonly seen in pregnancy and diabetic individuals. TReatment could be any of the following: Cauterization: with an electrolysis instrument Cryosurgery (freezing) Ligation: cutting off blood supply Excision: with a scalpel, or other surgical instrument Each of these treatments is considered minor surgery, typically performed by a physician in the office. Warts are common, and are caused by a viral infection.
Avatar m tn Her doctor told her she can treat the warts, but that things like stress, pregnancy and illnesses can make them come back. Her doctor also told her she probably got the infection from me as men don't have symptoms, but can carry the virus forever and that the warts on her anus are probably from contact with my scrotum I've been looking through this site and have noticed that this information does not seem to be accurate. I haven't cheated on her and we've been dating for about 2 years.

Avatar f tn Adverse effects include pain, irritation, soreness, and mild scarring. Repeated treatments are necessary. Imiquimod 5% (Aldara), an immune response modifier, stimulates production of interferon-alfa and other proinflammatory cytokines, inducing a tissue reaction known to be associated with viral clearance from the skin. Apply 3 times per week for up to 16 weeks or nightly for 4 weeks. Clearing can take up to 3 months. Tretinoin (Retin-A) 0.1% cream can be applied to lesions twice daily.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with genital warts back in 1997. I was given imiquimod and everything cleared up until my pregnancy in 2003/2004. My OBGYN would not give me treatment at that time even after multiple requests. My child was born without incident and is HPV free. Since 2004 I have been to four different docs that have either told me creams are ineffective and they wouldn’t consider freezing since they often come back. I had lost faith in the medical community.
Avatar n tn I am currently pregnant and I was hoping to find out if there is any hope for treatment of this virus, while pregnant or post pregnancy. I have been thinking about maybe seeing an Acupunturist to see if they can help me,what do you think?

Avatar f tn He recommends I continue with antivirals, and he suggested tenofovir now, as it is a category B drug, safe during pregnancy. He also said that for every month I stop my antivirals and dna is still detected, I actually have to continue the medication for much much longer to reach the same stage I did. (reason he gave was because my previously not infected liver cells are now infected by the dna virus, so it will take even more time to clear those away). Is this true??
Avatar f tn It is a bit more complicated though as I am female and Baraclude is not advisable to use during pregnancy or breastfeeding the baby. Though it is not an immediate issue for me now but I would like to know in advance. Please share any experiences/advices regarding this matter. Thanks.
Avatar m tn monocytes – According to a 2011 interventional study in which patients with multiple sclerosis were given high doses of vitamin , peripheral blood mononuclear cells (monocytes) lose “abnormal reactivity” at 40 ng/mL.10 Epstein Barr virus – In a 2010 study of pregnancy-associated breast cancer, higher levels of 25-D were positively correlated with serum antibodies to Epstein Barr Virus, suggesting that EBV is able to better proliferate in patients who take vitamin D.
